It's All About the Dollar, Get Rich Or Die Tryin'!

By: Min. Angela Lee Price
It is so fitting that as we remember the legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. that we hear from the current pastor of Ebenezer Baptist Church. Rev. Raphael G. Warnock, 36, who now pastors the historic 2,200-member Ebenezer Baptist Church, the former church of Coretta Scott King, where Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was an associate minister, and his father a pastor, speaks out against mega church prosperity preacher Creflo Dollar in this six-minute Fox5 Atlanta news report on Dollar entitled Preaching Prosperity posted on on November 16, 2006. Warnock says that the prosperity gospel is "the gospel of the 'bling bling' in which the preachers and the rappers are saying virtually the same thing, 'get rich or die tryin'.'"

Creflo Dollar has, in addition to his $80 million dollar-a-year ministry, a private jet, several expensive cars including a Rolls-Royce, a $2 million dollar apartment in New York and this $3 million dollar estate in Georgia with an indoor swimming pool and tennis court.

Rev. Al Sharpton chimes in on Dollar, too, in this report, "To try to distort Jesus to try to justify your new jet plane or your new Rolls-Royce to me is an abomination."
